Question about Bernina Bernette Deco 600
I had my machine service not too long ago. They did correct all the tension and cleaned the machine. I was working right along and broke a needle, so I changed the needle and it was working fine. Then bobbin thread runs low (not out). so I take remaining thread of bobbin and fill it back up. Problem is now I can't get the bobbin thread to catch. I've assured the need is not bent, is inserted correctly and threaded right. I thread the bobbin as shown. Just won't catch. I do notice when I take the bobbin plate off and watch the machine work there is no movement at all. I'm assuming that the machanics are suppose to move the bobbin thread toward the needle so that it can catch. though I'm not an expert, I'm just surmising. Anyway, I'm getting really frustrated. I've cleaned out he bobbin area.. I just don't know what else I can do? Does anyone think retiming would work? How do I retime this machine?
Any help sure would be appreciated!
Your timing has been messed up by breaking the needle. When the needle hit the bobbin race, it shoved the needle bar up and now the needle is not in the correct position to catch the bobbin thread when the race rotates. The needle has a little dip in the back, called the scarf. When you take the neddle plate off and watch it move, you should see the little hook pass through the scarf. That's how it makes the locking stitch and picks up the bobbin thread. Unfortunately, you will need to take this in to a dealer or service place to have them adjust the needle bar height. It's not a complicated task so see if they can check it while you wait. It may be more difficult to fix, like retiming the machine. But it doesn't sound like you've done any major damage to the mechanism.

When you broke the needle I think you have moved the shaft that brings the needle down ,you can adjust it !
